GRITtv: Rep. Tammy Baldwin: The Bigger Fight Starts in Wisconsin

"People are very concerned about what will happen next if their right-wing governors and legislatures are emboldened by something in Wisconsin," says Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. She notes that while she was in Washington last week, colleagues told her that Wisconsin had to win its fight because if not, their state was next--and she got on the first plane she could to get home to her state and stand with the protesters.Rep. Baldwin joins Laura in Madison to discuss the larger national context for the fight over workers' rights in Wisconsin--and why it's connected to the larger fight over reproductive justice, health care, and rights for LGBT people.
